Dio Music Video Directed by Don Coscarelli

Until today I had no idea that PHANTASM (1979) director and co-creator Don Coscarelli had ever made a music video, much less one for the great Ronnie James Dio! I've been a fan of the Phantasm series and Dio for roughly the same number of years and the fact that they were connected by this 1984 short film blows my mind. The Last In Line is one of my favorite Dio songs so I have no idea how I never saw this video but I'm glad that wonders of YouTube make it possible to unearth any and everything. For Phantasm fans there are some interesting bits that will remind you of the films but the real wonder is RJD's amazing voice. Damn, that guy could sing!
